    I second that one Ivan, what a lovely looking plane which looks like a plane. The rest are hideous except for the B1 bomber which has its origins in WWII German technology.

    If you are referring to the F-22 as ugly I suggest you take a hammer to your computer and TV screens!! Twisted Evil Twisted Evil Even the F-35 is not ugly, but I can accept if you call the XF-32 a bit ugly. The T-50 shape is very similar to the Raptor, but the camouflage on the T-50 looks cool.

    p.s. - on a negative and sad note, the entire F-22 fleet has been grounded since May due to problems and incidents related to their oxygen systems. Not a very good period for a $400+ million dollar aircraft, and more over the Raptor pilots are not flying it, and that is even worse!!

    PAK- FA (Perspektivnyi Avia Kompleks - Froontovoi Avijjatsiji) or in house known as T-50 is a fifth generation fighter by
    OKB Sukhoi.
    these two bird are first and second prototype, powered with same Lyuka-Saturn AL 31F turbo fan like SU 27 family.
    new engines (AL-41) are in final stage of manufacturer tests and probably will be seen on some of following airframes. Engines hawing 360 degree thrust vectoring and some 45% greater thrust combined with lower mass.
    T-50 came like winner for new Russian combat aircraft. other two was Mikoyan-Gurevich MIG-1.44 and Sukhoi SU-47 Berkut (golden eagle)

    so far is not known much about this bird. Russia still keep for them self what this one is capable of.
    i try to find some valid informations but always get to find a lot of different and usually not correct data.

    how ewer, fact is we have injected model of this aircraft by "zvezda" so far in 1 72 scale.

    stevan.

    Evrey era has its black ducklings (depends on one's taste and choice), but calling modern aircraft hideous is taking it a bit too far Evil or Very Mad . Even the british, french, americans, russians and germans had ugly looking aircraft, especially the germans with their 'luftwaffe 46' designs.

    T 50 , f 22 , JSF ...

    they are not good looking planes.
    f 16, mig 29 , mirage 2000 , that is nice by my opinion.
